Casia Sweater PDF english version
Casia Sweater is a short and feminine sweater with a wide neckline and ¾ length puff sleeves. The sweater does not need any final sewing despite the puff sleeves, as they are shaped with the help of in- and decreases. The sweater is knit top down, so you can easily adjust the length at both the body and sleeves while knitting. By knitting short rows, the neck line is slightly higher at the back. This sweater is supposed to be worn with an approx. 5- 10 cm positive ease. If your bust measurement is 84 cm, you should choose a size XS.
